Nearly done with Temper revisions. It feels so good to be this close to the end. It's funny-- the more I work on the book, the more I like it. I'm mending and repairing and fixing everything that once bothered me. Of course I should expect to like it more.
I guess I didn't know it would be so easy.
Not EASY-easy, because writing a book? NOT EASY. But the more I work on it, the easier it is to continue working on it, because the better it gets.
Of course, pushing myself to the point where I could begin to work on it again was very, very, very difficult. It was SO. MUCH. WORK. So daunting. So energy/mind/life-draining. But now all that's left is polishing minor stuff, and I'm getting excited about the story. I like the story again. I'm feeling hopeful again.
And yeah, I'm still dreaming of new story ideas. You guys might tire of this, but I got another awesome idea I can't wait to write. Think I'm gonna go with this for my next project. I'm calling it SEVEN DAYS for now, but I'm not really sold on the title. It's a YA fantasy, and I started really plotting it today, talking through the story with my boyfriend (who has heard-- and remembers-- the plots for at least 20 of my ideas. He is forever spoiled for any/all of my writings).
Him: So how is the main character going to kill the bad guy in the end?
Me: I'm not sure yet. But I'm thinking some good old fashioned ingenuity... or maybe an axe.
Also, I just want to say thanks to all you guys! Your comments have been so encouraging, even though I've been so missing lately. I'm excited to get back into our lovely little blogging community. I'll be posting a lot more regularly here.
But for now, I'm off to revise some more!
